Things I'm thankful for tonight.

My family and friends are safe. 
Fort McMurray seems to have been evacuated without loss of life.
We're a long way away from the fire but I have patients in Fort Mac.  It feels far too close.
It's cooler tonight.
Pizza and a walk with our granddaughter this evening.
Friends at work.
Hugs.
Moving into our home soon.

I look at the photos of the flames and the people (like me) escaping a burning city and I want to hold all those I hold dear close to me.

I'm also so thankful that when awful things happen, it brings out the best in people.  There is hope for us.

  1. I have been watching this unfold with such sadness for those who have lost so much. If you know of a credible charity who is helping these folks, please post it. I would be happy to make a donation.

  2. It boggles my mind how many people were affected by this. Heartbreaking.

  3. Thanks. I just realized there's a Canadian Red Cross.

    Duh.
